Summer heatwaves promote blooms of harmful cyanobacteria

External Data Reference Published 02 Nov 2011
Topics: ,
A coupled biological–physical model investigating how competition for light between buoyant cyanobacteria, diatoms, and green algae in eutrophic lakes is affected by the meteorological conditions of this extreme summer heatwave. The model consists of a phytoplankton competition model coupled to a one-dimensional hydrodynamic model, driven by meteorological data.
